In the very short history of the Ludlow Tuart Forest Restoration Group we have had considerable support from the Federal and State Government, Local Government, corporations, local businesses and individuals. We appreciate this ongoing support.
Communities Environment Program grant from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science to restore approximately hectares of degraded land on both sides of the Ludlow River between the Tuart Drive and Ludlow Road, North bridges by infill planting of native species endemic to the area and sourced from local nurseries (2019).
Natural Resource Program Management (South West Development Commission Region)
Grant to restore 185 hectares of tuart forest previously cleared for agriculture, planted to softwood, clear felled 20 years ago, and now generally degraded. The ultimate outcomes of this project are to recreate a tuart forest system, recognising the immense values provided by functional tuart forest ecosystems - Carbon capture, production, protection, tourism, recreation, education, heritage, clean air and water management. This project is intended to be a demonstration of forest regeneration and restoration at its best (2018).
City of Busselton grant to restore the roof of the former truck shed. The funding, under the category `Community Enhancement` has enabled us to re-roof the building and install a 130,000 litre rain water tank to provide portable water for the Ludlow mill compound (2019).
